LL and I were watching the local news during our coffee time this morning. A featured segment was in Astoria. Specifically at a Hotel that LL and I stayed at a few months ago. This was when my computer was acting up and I did not download pictures for weeks.
So I never posted any pictures and the view from our hotel room was so spectacular, it would be a shame not to show you at least a couple of shots.
The hotel sits on a pier. So if you have a ground level room, (which we did) the balcony is literally barely over the water. And the view of the world-famous Astoria Bridge I think could rival what I imagine the Eiffel Tower experience to be like. I know, Paris would be a lovely place to go, but COME ON! Look at the view.
I do love Astoria. Over the last two or three years, LL and I have chosen to go there when we want to go to the coast. Over the last few years, I have got to know the town pretty well and I must say, if I had to move from my beloved Silverton, I could easily live in Astoria. But they do get even more rain than Silverton. This was the first time we stayed at this hotel. So on this trip, I barely left the hotel room, (actually barely left the balcony), because the view was so beautiful.
LL and I are planning on spending a couple of days very soon in Astoria. I am not sure if we will stay at the same hotel. Kind of spendy but worth if for special occasions.
